George Soros counts as a country all on his own!
Cambridge Analyca should really be scrutinized my countrie is the 2nd most compromised after the USA.
Looks like they are selling facebook info from countries that will have an election and in our case all political parties used that info.
It's equally dumbfounding and more disturbing that we are not taking the appropriate steps to ensure this doesn't happen over and over again. If the findings showed that Russians worked to help Democrats my bet is the Republicans in power today would have a very different position on this.
It's insidious because the top priorities for these guys is to protect people from physical harm and protect our democracy. Disgraceful.
Russia did literally nothing wrong thought.
American citizens spending their legal American currency on their own interests in accordance to our campaign finance and fundraising laws is different from a foreign power hacking our citizens and spending their money illegally to influence our election and elected officials.
You know most American Jews are progressive democrats, and AIPAC is the home of the neo-cons for some reason, yeah?
You can only come to this conclusion if you don't think spreading lies and fabricated stories is unethical or wrong, that there is no problem with obtaining illegally stolen emails and publishing them and that you meet with members of a campaign of one party to get "dirt" against your political opponents and help spread it. And to do all of this for favorable policy (or less harsh policy).
So your comment means you are ignorant on what happened or you don't think obvious unethical shit is actually unethical.
I think the Dems are just pissed they didn't think of datamining Facebook first.
Actually much of what Cambridge analytica is accused of, is what Obama's campaign was praised for in 08.
To be clear, my position on this issue is:
1. Trump didn't collude w/ Russia to hack the election.
2. Any influence Russia had was insignificant and the whole story is a red herring disguised as fear mongering.
Only the shitholes, though. And they didn't possess the resources to do anything to help her campaign.
Except Obama was an American and didn't solicit funding from foreign oligarchs to pay for his data research.
But how will future Republicans get Russian help if they outlaw Russian help?
Ethics and politics dont go together to begin with. Russia helped the lesser evil win by doing what US usually did and do in other countries, and i dont even like Putin but this time time he did something good for a change.
Every move was the right move in the right direction with successful outcome. So like i said, Russia did nothing wrong.
This attitude is unhealthy in a pluralistic democracy.
Being delusional is unhealthy. Having high moral ground in politics just means that you are less asshole than the other guy or girl (look how progressive i am), but you are still an asshole.
btw guys @HomerThompson will give likes and bjs to anyone who disagrees with me, DO NOT miss this great opportunity
Grow up. You're not even on my radar.
You got a source for that?
I understand the 2 most partisan posters "like" the empty posts. But how's about a source for it.
